Who hasn't dreamed to wear their favorite jeans over and over again? It is now possible in Paris (France), in the quartier of Saint Martin-Château d'eau.
It is quite exceptional to bring together ecology, economy, social responsibility and environmental commitment, a great revenge on the carbon footprint. Indeed, producing jeans is very greedy in water, more than 10,000 liters of water according to WWF (cotton cultivation and washing operations included). Between the origins of the constituent elements and the different manipulations involved in weaving and dyeing before assembly operations, classic brand jeans can go around the earth more than once!
